Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The day and week I am sure Ethiopia could let their great ally decide, considering that both sides has been arming and preparing themselves during the fall. The union of islamic courts got their guns from the middle east and their training from Eritrea. Or so claimed a UN report sometime around november.

Something I should add, is that in my view there is little reason to overthrow these governments to get their natural resources as the US (or anyone else) can buy them for shiny guns. The horn of Africa is home to some of the planets poorest countries in measurements such as food/capita. Their governments are poor and weak and no where near the mid-eastern ones. Both Ethiopia and Eritrea was part of the moral support section of the coalition of the willing. Ethiopia got the price of US backing. For now.
